National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 Part 2 – Survey of vessels Chapter 1 Preliminary 1.1 Overview (1) The Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) as the National Regulator relies on the recommendations of marine surveyors to determine whether a vessel meets the applicable safety, design, construction and equipment standards. (2) This Part of the manual sets out the requirements for the survey of domestic commercial vessels (DCV) which are required to hold a Certificate of Survey or a Load Line Certificate, which operate under Exemption 40 (Class C restricted operations) or which operate under another exemption that requires survey. (3) Vessel surveys must be undertaken in accordance with the requirements of this manual. Note 1 The National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 has two Parts. Part 1 of the manual provides a ‘how to’ guide to getting accredited as a Marine Surveyor under the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Regulation 2013 (National Law Regulation). Part 2 (this Part) of the manual contains the survey requirements for vessels, and the survey methodology for surveyors undertaking surveys, under the National Law. Note 2 A vessel in the course of construction is a domestic commercial vessel if the vessel is, after completion, for use as a domestic commercial vessel – see section 7 of the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Act 2012 (National Law). 1.2 Scope (1) This Part of the manual sets out the survey requirements for domestic commercial vessels which are applying for, or hold, a Certificate of Survey, a Load Line Certificate, an Exemption 40 approval or approval under another relevant exemption. (2) It also provides the National Regulator, Accredited Marine Surveyors, Recognised Organisations and other stakeholders with the information necessary to undertake surveys on domestic commercial vessels. 1.3 Application (1) This Part of the manual applies: (a) under Marine Order 503 (Certificates of Survey – National Law), to vessels required to hold a Certificate of Survey; (b) under Marine Order 507 (Load Line Certificates – National Law), to vessels required to hold a Load Line Certificate; (c) under Exemption 40, to vessels operating under Exemption 40; and (d) in accordance with any other exemption that requires compliance to the manual as a condition of the exemption. (2) In accordance with the Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Regulation 2013 (National Law Regulation), this Part of the manual also applies to persons undertaking surveys on domestic commercial vessels. Note 1 The manual has been prescribed under Marine Order 503 as a standard in relation to the survey of domestic commercial vessels, in accordance with section 32 of the National Law Regulation. Note 2 Accredited Marine Surveyors, Recognised Organisations, qualified electricians and the National Regulator are the only persons authorised to conduct those surveys on domestic commercial vessels that are required under the National Law – see Marine Order 503, Marine Order 507 and Exemption 40. 3

National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 Part 2 – Survey of vessels Note 3 The reference to surveys includes plan approvals – see Chapter 3 and Chapter 5 of this Part 2 of the manual. 1.4 Objective The objectives of this Part of the manual are to: (a) specify the requirements for the survey of domestic commercial vessels; (b) facilitate consistent survey practices; (c) provide methodology to verify that a vessel satisfies the applicable requirements of the National Law; and (d) outline the ways to demonstrate that a vessel meets the safety outcomes required under the National Law and mentioned in the applicable legislation, exemptions and standards. 1.5 Equivalent means of compliance (1) An equivalent means of compliance to one or more of the requirements of Chapter 3 – Chapter 8 that apply to a vessel may be approved by the National Regulator in accordance with Marine Order 503. Note The proposed equivalent means of compliance must be at least as effective as the requirement(s) that it is to replace in order for it to be approved by the National Regulator – see Division 4 of Marine Order 503. (2) Where the National Regulator has approved an equivalent means of compliance, the requirements of Chapter 3 – Chapter 8 that have not been replaced by the approved equivalent means of compliance continue to apply to the vessel. 1.6 Reference documents Each document mentioned in the following table is: (a) referenced in this Part of the manual; and (b) the latest revision of the document, including amendments, unless stated otherwise. 4 Publisher Document Available American Boat and Yacht Council ABYC Standard for Technical Information Reports for Small Craft, P-6 Propelled Shafting Systems (ABYC P-6) ABYC website at http://www.abycinc.org Australian Maritime Safety Authority Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) AMSA website at National Law Act 2012 (National Law) https://www.amsa.gov.au Marine Safety (Domestic Commercial Vessel) National Law Regulation 2013 (National Law Regulation) Marine Order 502 (Unique identifiers – national law) 2017 (Marine Order 502) Marine Order 503 (Certificates of survey – national law) 2018 (Marine Order 503) Marine Order 507 (Load line certificates – national law) 2018 (Marine Order 507) Marine safety (Certificates of survey) Exemption 2018 (Exemption 02)

National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 Part 2 – Survey of vessels Chapter 2 Control of the survey process 2.1 Application This chapter applies to all persons undertaking surveys on domestic commercial vessels in accordance with Chapter 3 – Chapter 8 of this Part of the manual. Note 1 Accredited Marine Surveyors, Recognised Organisations, the National Regulator and for some electrical surveys – qualified electricians, may conduct surveys on domestic commercial vessels – see Marine Order 503, Marine Order 507 and Exemption 40. Note 2 This chapter contains general requirements which apply to all surveys undertaken in accordance with this manual. 2.2 General requirements The survey of a domestic commercial vessel must be conducted and documented in accordance with this Part of the manual. Note This chapter applies to all kinds of surveys including initial, periodic, renewal, load line, Exemption 40, and surveys of vessels maintained in class. 2.3 Purpose of surveys To the extent practicable, given the scope and depth of a particular survey, the purpose of conducting a survey is to: (a) confirm that the vessel and its equipment comply with, or continue to comply with, the requirements of the applicable legislation, exemptions and standards; and (b) identify deterioration, wear or damage to the vessel that may interfere with the ability of the vessel and its equipment to comply with (a). 2.4 Competence Persons who survey vessels, or who carry out another function required for the survey of a vessel, its fittings or equipment, must have the appropriate training, knowledge, experience and, where appropriate, qualifications, to competently undertake the particular survey activity. Note Only Accredited Marine Surveyors, Recognised Organisations, the National Regulator and for some electrical surveys – qualified electricians, may conduct surveys on domestic commercial vessels – see Marine Order 503, Marine Order 507 and Exemption 40. 2.5 Retention and transfer of information essential to safety (1) The survey process undertaken by the surveyor must ensure that information essential to safety, which arises during the survey, is recorded for future reference and is transferred to others responsible for the safety of the vessel who might need to rely on and act upon that information. (2) Surveyors must have in place processes to retain essential information, including records of the survey, for the period required by any applicable legislation. Example The National Law Regulation requires records relating to a recommendation made to the National Regulator to be kept for a period of seven years beginning on the day the recommendation is made. 9

National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 2.6 Part 2 – Survey of vessels Transparency The survey process must be reviewable and auditable by the National Regulator and other parties to facilitate confidence that the objectives of this Part of the manual are being achieved. 2.7 Reliance on third parties (1) Third parties cannot conduct a survey, or part of a survey, on behalf of the surveyor. Note Only Accredited Marine Surveyors, Recognised Organisations, the National Regulator and for some electrical surveys – qualified electricians, may conduct surveys on domestic commercial vessels – see Marine Order 503, Marine Order 507 and Exemption 40. (2) However, third parties may undertake specified activities and inspections that support surveys, including: (a) verification of safety, navigation and communication equipment; (b) electrical and gas certification; (c) material, manufacturer and product certification; and (d) provision of destructive and non-destructive examination (NDE) reports. Example 1 A copy of the life raft certificate obtained during survey can be retained as evidence that the surveyor has confirmed that the life raft has been serviced in accordance with the applicable standards. A surveyor would still be expected to ensure the life raft is on board, is of the correct type and size, is appropriately located, is secured correctly and is in good condition at the time of survey. Example 2 A NDE report obtained during survey can be retained during survey as evidence that the surveyor has verified the thickness of a vessel’s hull. A surveyor would still be expected to inspect the vessel’s hull to confirm the overall condition of the hull and identify any defects or decficiencies. (3) Where third party reports are relied upon, the surveyor must make such enquiries as required to ensure that the results: (a) are reliable; and (b) verify that the subject of the report complies with the required standard. Note The quality of inputs to the survey system can have a significant impact on the quality of outputs from the survey system. 2.8 Reporting obligations and unsafe vessels (1) Section 33 of the National Law Regulation requires Accredited Marine Surveyors to report to the National Regulator where: (a) corrective action is required to the vessel, or a thing on the vessel, due to a defect or non conformity in the vessel or thing; and (b) a matter, or an aspect of a matter, being surveyed is complex or novel, and is not covered by an applicable standard. (2) If, during the conduct of a survey, a surveyor becomes aware of a defect, non-conformity or novel matter relating to the vessel or a thing on the vessel, then the surveyor must report the matter to the National Regulator as soon as practicable. (3) Details of the deficencies or novel matters are to be: (a) notified in writing to the owner of the vessel; (b) provided to the National Regulator; and (c) retained by the surveyor. 10

National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 Part 2 – Survey of vessels (4) In addition, where, during the course of an initial, periodic or renewal survey, a surveyor identifies aspects of a vessel’s arrangement, construction, machinery or equipment that are unsafe, including items which are not the subject of a specific provision under applicable legislation, exemptions and standards, the surveyor must: (a) advise the owner of the vessel in writing of the problem; and (b) advise the National Regulator of the matter as soon as practicable. Note The National Regulator provides specific contact numbers and emails for these circumstances – see the AMSA website at www.amsa.gov.au. 2.9 Making recommendations 2.9.1 General requirements and forms (1) After completing a survey, the surveyor must make a recommendation to the National Regulator about the vessel’s compliance with the applicable legislation, exemptions and standards. (2) Section 36 of the National Law Regulation requires recommendations to be in writing and in the form specified in this manual. (3) The forms which apply to vessel surveys are specified in Annex 1. (4) The forms specified in Annex 1 must be used by a surveyor where the surveyor does not have a Quality Management System (QMS) that is compliant with ISO 9001:2008 (or an equivalent standard) and they are making a recommendation in paper or scanned format. (5) Where a surveyor has a QMS that is compliant with ISO 9001:2008 (or equivalent), it is recommended that the forms specified in Annex 1 are used where recommendations are made in paper or scanned format. Note Using the preferred form(s) reduces the time taken for the National Regulator to consider the surveyor’s recommendation(s). (6) A surveyor who submits survey reports and recommendations using MARS is not required to use the forms identified in Annex 1. Note Electronic recommendations made directly into AMSA’s online surveyor portal (MARS), with appropriate supporting documentation attached (as specified in clause 2.9.2 below), satisfy the requirement to make a recommendation in writing and in the specified form. 2.9.2 Documentation supporting recommendations (1) Section 36 of the National Law Regulation requires recommendations to be supported by copies of all documents referred to in a recommendation, or supporting a recommendation, including the following: (a) drawings and plans; (b) approvals; and (c) technical evaluations and calculations. (2) Documentation supporting a recommendation must identify: (a) all steps completed during the survey in accordance with the requirements of Chapter 3 – Chapter 8 of this Part, as applicable to the survey; (b) any requirements of Chapter 3 – Chapter 8 that apply to the survey and which were not completed, together with a detailed reason why they were not completed; and 11

National Law - Marine Surveyors Accreditation Guidance Manual 2014 Part 2 – Survey of vessels (c) where a recommendation includes a recommendation to impose a condition(s) – evidence that supports the recommendation to impose the condition(s). (3) All supporting documentation must be provided to the National Regulator with the recommendation. Note Photographs are a good source of evidence and should be maintined by the surveyor and provided to the National Regulator on request. (4) Annex 1 specifies the types of documentation the National Regulator expects to be submitted for different types of surveys. (a) The documentation specified in Annex 1 as
